    Based on his favorable experience using the glued IOL technique, Dr. Donnenfeld said it has become his preferred approach for repositioning a dislocated IOL.

    “With the glued IOL technique, the IOL almost always centers perfectly, and I have not seen any IOL tilt, which can occur after suturing a dislocated IOL,” Dr. Donnenfeld said.

    “Long-term follow-up in more eyes is needed to assess the durability of a glued dislocated IOL. However, since I began using this technique two years ago, positioning of the IOLs has been consistently stable.”
